Born January 26, 1936, in Brooklyn, New York, Silvio "Sal" Buscema is one of comic books’ most prolific artists, having penciled all of Marvel's major super-hero characters and teams including Spider-man, Captain America, the Hulk, Daredevil, Thor, Iron Man, The Avengers, The Defenders and the Fantastic Four. In 1968 Sal joined Marvel Comics where his first job was inking the Silver Surfer #4, penciled by his brother, John Buscema.
Sal holds the record for the longest run as a penciler on a comic book for his work on “Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-man.” He penciled 18 of the first 20 issues of the title and returned to pencil the book from 1988 through 1996 (Issues #134 - #238).
Married to the lovely Joan since 1960, he is the proud father of Joe, Tony and Mike. At 83, Sal is not retired and has no immediate plans to do so.
